“Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Great wine selection...attentive server. I had the crispy shrimp small plate and it was the perfect amount of food and absolutely delicious! Great seats outside that were perfect for people watching.

“Another Must Try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Our experience (we were 7 people) was wonderful! Drinks were a generous pour and from the appetizers on we were happy! Sure it's loud and South Beach but what fun to look and see the vibrant energy young and old have when they are in an environment as amazing as Catch! We had the Whole Fish, Sushi, Seared Tuna, all good!! Enjoy!!

“Ok, but there's better fish in Miami”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is okay but it's pricey and there are a lot better fish and seafood options in Miami.

We were greeted politely on arrival and shown upstairs to a rather dark seating area. There were plenty of spaces but we were seated in a cramped, busy part of the restaurant which was a bit strange as we were all crowded together. However they did move us on request to a more spacious area.

The menu is quite extensive and is nicely laid out into sections, categorising the food as raw, cooked, simple, specials etc and the wine ditto to complement the food.

I would recommend you chose dishes to share as the portions are quite generous by European standards. Their speciality Zulu rolls were average (much better sushi at The Mondrian) but the crispy shrimp was very good if not a bit spicy.

Simply cooked shrimps and mahi-mahi to follow with sauce of choice and side salad. The fish was a bit over cooked but the shrimps were good. Truffle chips on the side were excellent but avoid the brussel sprouts - oily, hard and tasteless.

Service was good and we were well looked after by Olga who helped with the menu choices and was attentive as required.

But this was really rather ordinary. None of the dishes jumped out as being particularly special, the restaurant was dark and tables were too close together and, with precious few evenings left, I'd rather have tried one of the Prime franchise which has had rave reviews.

$250 for 2 with a cocktail each, bottle of wine, starters and mains.

“Don't go for a special occasion”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

This was our third visit to Catch. When it first opened, it was really good. This visit was really disappointing.
It was our daughters birthday and we had pre-warned the restaurant. Instead of maybe a little enhanced service, we actually received the opposite. We were seated in the worst table in the room, right in the walkway for the service staff and customers - I would guess my chair was bumped into at leas once a minute and although they had some booths available, they were not prepared to move us.
The meal was OK, but not great, the portion sizes have definitely reduced in size.
Service was patchy. They were busy, but trying to call service staff was difficult to impossible.
To make the experience worse, they charged us $12 to present the birthday cake to our daughter.
If you want seafood, I would go to Lure next door

“Dark & Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I went here for an early dinner during the week and there were just a few other tables filled, but as expected the younger bar crowd started filling out the rest of the restaurant by the time I left.

Service was great and the food was delicious.

The plates are all small (tapas style) so we tried a bunch of different things and I wasn't upset about anything served.

The restaurant's biggest flaw might be that it's terribly dark, making it harder for an older crowd to really see the menu- or the food.

If you're not a fan of sharing or darkness, this place isn't for you.

Buf if you like a relaxed atmosphere, a nice cocktail and delicious food then you have to try Catch while you're in town!
